Ice Storm Warning

The National Weather Service has issued an Ice Storm Warning until noon 2 p.m. today. That snow that fell yesterday now have a coating of ice over the top. You can see and probably hear the mini ice pellets coming down. That freezing rain is making conditions bad. The roads are icy and officials are urging people to stay home.

Here are live traffic cameras for Ballard:

  • Due to icy conditions, there will be no residential garbage pickup in Seattle today, and only limited commercial service.
  • Weather permitting, garbage, recycling, and food/yard waste service will resume Friday, on a revised schedule — with customers scheduled for pickup today collected Friday, and Friday customers collected Saturday.

    If your materials are not picked up this week, please put them out on your next regularly scheduled pickup day. Missed customers will be allowed to set out double their normal amount of garbage, recycling and yard waste at no additional charge.
